Stepanek blaming Del Potro for faking!

I have not read any of this here on MTF so I decided to make a new thread for it.

After he lost his single match against Del Potro, Stepanek blamed Del Potro for faking an injury.

Here's what he said (my translation, because I read it in a German article and have not found the original quotes in English):

"Del Potro was completely healthy. Maybe he wanted to bring some discomposure before the Davis Cup, but he didn't seem injured. He took all his chances."

He also critisized the Argentinian fans:

"It's very loud. Our fans made much noise. But I think the Argies didn't show enough respect. They weren't quiet during our first services."

Original article: http://www.tennisnet.com/oesterreich/turnier/daviscupspecial/Davis-Cup-Stepanek-laestert-ueber-del-Potro/4315248

Yay, that's Stepanek at it again. What a fool :rolleyes:

This is good. Davis cup ties needs some trash talk before the matches.

He's probably wrong about the injury faking but about the crowd he got a fair point! Still that's what makes DC fun

Even though I don't totally agree, JMDP wouldn't have withdrawn from his second match if he were 100%.

Mentally weak here from Stepanek.

In a Davis Cup atmosphere, you have to expect the crowd to shout before serves, between 1st and 2nd serves, and during points. Especially in Argentina. Second, whenever you walk on court, and you are playing an opponent, you assume he is 100% healthy and you play your game.

Stepanek is trolling.

Del Potro was clearly not faking. He has had wrist problems after the Olympics.

Nothing to see or read here, just Stepanek trolling. Del Potro wasn't faking.

What do you expect playing in Argentina, it's not a library that's part of Davis Cup. As long as they aren't shining mirrors, lasers or throwing flares, chairs or other stuff then deal with it.

Classic Stepanek antics :o Now he can't win a match anymore, It's even more sad. He's just Mad Delpo while injured still routines him.
Tennis needs more bad guys, but not some old clown talking nonsense.

Stepanek is just an unpleasant person. It must be hard for him to accept that a 50% DPo is better than he is.

I think Argentina knew DPo was injured but hoped to use him to win one match and take their chances. There always seems to be some ill fortune for Argentina in Davis Cup.

Agreed. And we all know how much Davis Cup means to Delpo. Do you remember last year against Spain? Exactly. He would do anything to finish a match, ESPECIALLY on Argentine soil. He cried when he won the bronze for Argentina in the Olympis ffs. I doubt he would fake an injury. This isn't just him either.. it's about the whole team.

You are being sarcastic, right? Those WTA players do a lot more trash talking than the big friends club the ATP has become. They do bitchy comments all the time :lol:, I doubt the top girls like each other.

What do people want, every player back slapping and kissing each other's arse? BORING.

Del Potro wasn't faking and Steps was trolling and stirring it up, but that's something I like to see, not everyone being lovable and blessed with humility.

Botox lips is most likely correct. Del-Shitro has most likely been faking and blaming "injury" on the string of the shitty results he's had after his comeback. I bet he thought he would come back and win slams, not realizing that late 2009 was the biggest fluke in tennis history :superlol:

Yes, topspindoctor.

Del Potro, who would give anything to represent his country, whose bronze medal for Argentina meant almost as much to him as his USO did, faked an injury to get out of playing a crucial match for his country to get to the Davis Cup finals.

That makes sense.

That makes sense.

Nadal faked an injury to get out out of carrying an Olympic flag for his country (he doesn't like to lift heavy things) and defend his gold medal, according to the tards here, so Del Potro faking out of DC match is not so farfetched.

Ok, dull faking an injury to avoid carrying the flag is crazy.

But Del Potro has more pride for his country than almost any other active tennis player. He wouldn't fake an injury to get out of a Davis Cup match. He did everything he could to play and just couldn't pull it off. Most players wouldn't show up.

I agree with you, but if Nadal won, all of the tards would proclaim him the GOAT because he is the only way Spain can win the Davis Cup.

But I'm pretty sure Berdych and Del Potro don't like each other and it would hurt for Berdych to win the Davis Cup over Delpo/Nalby more than Spain winning again.
